Boys, quit practicing on those bananas because sword-swallowing Alex Magala has just shamed us all.
The Moldovan-born performer of Britain's Got Talent fame appeared on Ellen to show off his acrobatic sword-swallowing routine. Magala not only swallowed two different swords--a typical Western-looking blade and a katana--but also managed backflips and pole-dancing with the swords. Inside him. Because gay men everywhere just needed to be knocked down a peg--or 20.
Ellen asks what we're all thinking. Why--just why?
"I'm from Moldova, it's in Eastern Europe," Magala says. "It's a poor country, pretty much nothing to do."
Apparently he turned on America's Got Talent, saw a sword-swallower and said, "That's it!"
Well if Magala's act doesn't work out, he certainly has a chance at teaching a master class. He's sure to have a few--let's say million--prospective students.
